Seller. Debbie Kendall of The Enlightened Hound.
"This 1950 cover of a hunting party by illustrator Mary Petty is characteristic of her work. She loved to draw sly caricatures of upper class society which were wittily observed, yet affectionate. She assigned the name “Peabody” to the family that recurred in her drawings, with their wisp of a parlour maid named “Fay”. The New Yorker magazine was first published in 1925. Still going strong today, it covers a variety of topics from current affairs, biographical studies, reviews and events in the city, short fiction, commentaries on popular culture and cartoons. Its iconic covers are commissioned by well known artists, illustrators and cartoonists, on which dogs are a regular feature.
Framed in a custom made reclaimed wood frame (to complete the vintage vibe) - hand painted and waxed. Each frame has its own pattern of knots, dinks, scratches, nail holes, wonky edges and aged patina. Fitted with crystal clear acrylic ’glass’ and ready to hang."
